The majestic Congo River traverses regions so diverse they might be in different countries, but those mighty waters linking East Africa to the Atlantic coast unite them. The Democratic Republic of the Congo is made up of about 250 ethnic groups using over 700 languages and dialects.

Africa's Tower of Babel is peopled by energetic and inventive individuals who daily struggle to rise above decades of dictatorial leadership born of colonial horror.

How do ordinary people love, live and survive in the extraordinary DRC, a country that is the size of western Europe, which has wealth beyond measure in its natural resources, yet is one of the poorest countries in the world?

In pictures taken by some of the world's finest photographers, the rich diversity of lives lived in the fascinating, baffling heart of Africa is explored. The photographers are Greg Marinovich, Leonie Marinovich, Gary Knight, Pieter Hugo, Muntu Vilakazi, Victor Matom and Marcus Bleasdale.
